Default Cast Iron Baked Chicken (Courtesy of Cooks Country)

Starting the baking of the chicken in a hot cast iron pan yields crispy and juicy pieces... the pan drippings are a treat onto themselves

  • 1 Chicken, broken down into eight pieces (2 split breasts, 2 drumsticks, 2 thighs, and 2 wings with wingtips discarded), trimmed of excess fat
  • Spice rub: thoroughly mix the following
    • 2 - teaspoons paprika
    • 2 - teaspoons salt
    • 1 - teaspoon pepper
    • - teaspoon onion powder
    • - teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 2 - tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 - sprigs fresh thyme

  1. Put a cold 12 cast iron skillet into a cold oven. Preheat both to 450 F
  2. Pat dry chicken pieces and season with spice rub
  3. When heated to 450 F, remove pan add butter and thyme
  4. Set chicken pieces in pan skin side down, return to oven for 15 minutes
  5. Flip chicken pieces over, bake another 15 mins or until breast is 160 F, thighs 175 F
  6. Remove from oven and let rest 10 minutes
  7. Stir up pan drippings and use as a sauce for baked chicken

I did something like that with my combo cooker. The main difference is I seared my chicken a little on the stove before putting it in the oven. Then I put BBQ sauce on it and covered it with the deep skillet (forming a dome cooker). I was very happy with the results.
